Classy Coast Path

Running locations don't get much better on a sunny evening. Glebe Cliff looking towards Tintagel Castle.

We were blessed with some more golden weather for the second installment in the Coastal Challenge Series, taking place on the craggy clifftops around Tintagel. Once again we were really excited by the amount of people who were keen to head out running with us. 98 runners all in all donned their trainers, this number topped up by 35 visiting Launceston Road Runners.

This was possibly the hardest of the run series with some hefty hills and some tricky rock sections to negotiate. Everyone took it in their stride, especially the many runners new to coastpath running. We’ve still got a few tricks left up our sleeve for the rest of the series (watch out for the sand dunes on the 4th run!), but this one was undoubtedly a toughie in the June heat.

Thanks to Rob, Zelda and team at the Strand Cafe for catering for the horde of hungry runners afterwards.
